  Manage your website with your control panel
Each account set up comes with its own control panel software. Your control panel is where you add email addresses, sub domains, and any personal modifications you want for your website. cPanel is a fully-featured web-based control panel that allows you to manage your domain through a web interface.  You have the ability to manage all aspects of email, files, backup, FTP, CGI scripts, and web site statistics.

Connecting via SSH:

SSH stands for Secure SHell. This is a command line interface identical to telnet. The only difference is that everything done through SSH is encrypted, so if anyone tries to snoop in during your session, they can't read what passwords or commands are being typed.

Before you can start accessing your account with SSH, you need to download an SSH client program. Perhaps the best one out there is SecureCRT, available from VanDyke software at http://www.vandyke.com/ . It's shareware so that you'll have to buy after 30 days of use. Otherwise, you can try looking for SSH clients (including freeware ones) at http://www.tucows.com . Whichever SSH client program you choose to download and install, in order to actually SSH into your account with us, you'll need to use the following settings in your SSH client program:

Protocol: ssh1 or ssh2
Hostname: yourdomain.com (or whatever your domain name is)
Port: 22
Cipher: 3DES or Blowfish
Authentication: password
Username: your account username
Password: your account password

Once you've successfully logged in, you'll be presented with a command prompt that looks something like "bash-2.04$ ". This is where you type commands. Here's a brief list of commands you can use:

ls - (list) this displays the files and directories in your current directory

ll - (long list) same as "ls", but displays some more details

cd - (change directory) when followed by a valid directory name, changes your current directory. Use "cd .." to move back one directory in the hierarchy.

pico - opens up a session with a simple text editor. Following this with a filename will edit that file if it already exists, or will open up a new one under that name if it doesn't exist

du - (disk usage) this displays a list of all of your directories and subdirectories. Beside each one is a number. That number tells you how much space that directory or subdirectory is taking up in KB (1 MB = 1024 KB).

If you like, you can also try using the web-based SSH utility included in your control panel (look for the "SSH Telnet" icon). We can't offer any guarantees on how well it'll work for you. It can be quite buggy at times.
